Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last election, has called on President Bola Tinubu to step aside following the recurrent kidnappings across the nation.
The former Vice President in a statement during the week,accused Tinubu who was on his way to Paris on a private visit,of fiddling with Nigeria in the face of worsening insecurity.
He said, “Tinubu is playing fiddle while Nigeria is drowning in the ocean of insecurity. To imagine that the Commander-in-Chief is on a so-called private visit while kidnappers kill a nursing mother and grandmother in Abuja for failing to pay N90m ransom and two monarchs in Ekiti, among other regular tragedies besetting Nigerians.
“If the shoes are too big for Emilokan, he should step aside. Nigeria does not need another Tourist-in-Chief. The country needs 24/7 leadership to confront the pervasive insecurity and collapsing economy.”.
